Dads require proper nourishment to keep us going and give us the energy to be at the top of our games for our families.
Locally-based Bellisari’s partnered with CBUS Dads to help us do exactly that. If you’re not familiar, their line of specialty spreads and sauces are all about #GourmetConvenience. Their website boasts a number of creative recipes that incorporate their delicious products.
Which is extraordinarily helpful, because I am not at all a good cook. I chose three recipes that piqued my interest (and I felt like I wouldn’t screw up):
I grill a lot of chicken, but admittedly, I didn’t know what to expect with the Blistered Jalapeno & Fig Spread. I must say, the spread was everything. I would use it for any grilled chicken I make down the road for sure.
I’d never made anything I’d classify as a skillet. I’ve grilled steak. I’ve made eggs. I’ve cooked potatoes. But these ingredients all together, paired with Bellisari’s Barista Sauce were unbelievable. I’ve been officially inspired to make more skillets in my future.
Despite the other two dishes being steak and chicken, amazingly the coleslaw was my favorite of all the recipes. The Saigon Street Sauce gave the dish a necessary pop of flavor that had me craving more. Luckily I made enough to stretch over a few days worth of meals.
